Commercial Sales and Solicitations on Campus

Commercial Sale is any transaction where money is exchanged or where a financial obligation is entered into for goods or services offered, except where such activity constitutes fund-raising.

Commercial Solicitation is any delivering or passing out of Printed Materials (including leafleting or handbilling), personal contact or door-to-door interaction with persons for the purpose of advertising or disseminating information about products or services, offering free samples, offering goods or services for sale, or encouraging attendance at commercial demonstrations or sales. Commercial solicitation includes, but is not limited to, the personal distribution of free samples or discount coupons or the distribution of application for credit cards.

No person shall conduct commercial sales or solicitations on the CMU campus without a properly issued, current, written permit in her/his possession (except as specified within the Exceptions under Permit for Commercial Sales).
